Castellammare di Stabia

Castellammare di Stabia is located in the south of the metropolitan city of Naples, in that place between the end of the area of Vesuvius and the beginning of the peninsula of Sorrento.
Famous for its shipyard which built the famous training ship ”Amerigo Vespucci” of Marina Militare, Castellammare di Stabia has its name because of an ancient Castle in the sea built by the Dukedom in Sorrento; we add ”Stabiae” because of the city destroyed by the eruption of the Vesuvius in the 79 BC whose testimonies are found in the well-known Roman villas: Villa Arianna e Villa San Marco, located in Varano hill.
Castellammare di Stabia has about 50 Catholic churches, divided in 19 parishes. The most important is Santissima Maria Assunta e San Catello Cathedral built in 1587 in which the estimated remains of the saint Catello – the patron of the city- are preserved.
Also, it’s worth mentioning Santa Maria di Pozzano basilica shrine located in the hill of the same name and built in the XVI century; it still has got the table which illustrates Pozzano Madonna, patron of Castellammare di Stabia, and was found miraculously in a well.

THE surroundings

Ruins of Herculaneum

Located in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum (Italian: Ercolano) was an ancient Roman town destroyed by volcanic pyroclastic flows in 79 AD. Its ruins are located in the comune of Ercolano, Campania, Italy.

As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is famous as one of the few ancient cities that can now be seen in much of its original splendour, as well as for having been lost, along with Pompeii, Stabiae, Oplontis and Boscoreale, in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 that buried it. Unlike Pompeii, the deep pyroclastic material which covered it preserved wooden and other organic-based objects such as roofs, beds, doors, food and even some 300 skeletons which were discovered in recent years along the seashore. It had been thought until then that the town had been evacuated by the inhabitants.

Herculaneum was a wealthier town than Pompeii, possessing an extraordinary density of fine houses with, for example, far more lavish use of coloured marble cladding.

the surroundings


Vesuvius is one of the two active volcanoes in the continental platform of Europe but also one of the most studied and dangerous in the world because of its explosive features and the amount of people who live nearby. It attracts a lot of tourists not only thanks to the visit over the crater, but also thanks to National Vesuvius Park – created on June in the 1995 because of the great geological, biological and historic interest it is.

Mount Vesuvius is best known for its eruption in AD 79 that led to the burying and destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae, as well as several other settlements. More than 1,000 people died in the eruption, but exact numbers are unknown. The only surviving eyewitness account of the event consists of two letters by Pliny the Younger to the historian Tacitus.
